I'm working on a G.I. Joe costume and am struggling with the beard for my character. I bought one from the Halloween store, and it just looks, and feels blah. What do the guys in the Fightin' 788th use for their artificial beards? they look so great!
To properly answer this question I looked to our own bearded wonder, Outback. And this is what our redheaded stepchild of survivalist had to say:
You definitely want to use a high grade beard and not a generic off the shelf Halloween store beard to achieve a realistic look. Beards can be pretty pricey so look around and find the best price for the best quality. Check out some of the options here, I find that they are reasonably priced:
Something to else keep in mind, you want more "points" which allows for more areas to attach/glue it to your face.
Thanks for writing and remember to stay hydrated – Outback
Well, there you have it Kyle. I hope that answers your question. Personally I’d say be a manly man and grow a beard like Rock ‘n Roll, but unlike good ‘ol RNR remember to use deodorant...oh and try not to scare little children.
Until next time - I’m Duke and awesome
